WG 1 ISO 31004
ISO/TC 262/WG 1 ISO 31004 was created at the first meeting after the transition from ISO/PC 262 to ISO/TC 262 in September 2012 in Sydney. Its scope was to develop a document entitled, Risk management – Guidance for the implemen-tation of ISO 31000.
Jan Mattingly from Canada was appointed convenor.
WG 1 developed ISO/TR 31004:2013 Risk management – Guidance for the implementation of ISO 31000 which was published in on October 15th, 2013. It provides guidance for organizations on managing risk effectively by imple-menting ISO 31000:2009 and provides:
- a structured approach for organizations to transition their risk manage-ment arrangements in order to be consistent with ISO 31000, in a manner tailored to the characteristics of the organization;
- an explanation of the underlying concepts of ISO 31000;
- guidance on aspects of the principles and risk management framework that are described in ISO 31000.
ISO/TR 31004:2013 can be used by any public, private or community enterprise, association, group or individual. It is not specific to any industry or sector, or to any particular type of risk, and can be applied to all activities and to all parts of organizations.
At its meeting in Chicago in September 2013 ISO/TC 262 with Resolution 2013/13 thanked the convenor and members of WG 1 for the successful completion of their task and formally dissolved the WG.
ISO was founded in 1946 by delegates from 25 countries and begann operating in February 1947. Today, it consists of a network of over 150 national bodies representing standardization in their countries.
In June 2005 ISO TMB (Technical Management Board) established a Working Group which was asked to write ISO 31000 and to revise ISO/IEC Guide 73:2002 which became ISO Guide 73:2009. ISO 31000:2009 Risk Management – Principles and Guidelines was published on November 15th, 2009. It was broadly leaning on the Australian New Zealand standard AS/NZS 4360.
In February 2011 ISO TMB established a Project Committee (PC) to develop guidance in the implementation of ISO 31000 and in August 2012 it converted the PC into a full Technical Committee (TC) which became ISO/TC 262 and finalized the work of the PC. ISO/TR 31004:2013 Risk management – Guidance for the implementation of ISO 31000 was published on October 15th, 2013.
